Branding on new Mathmos lamps

Started this discussion. Last reply by Nee Feb 9. 2 Replies

Hi all, Just a bit of an appeal for information to anyone who has bought a new Astro recently - does the Mathmos branding still appear on the lamps? A bit confused as some photos show the branding on…Continue

Need help

" A few of my lamps have this characteristic, but the 'grainy-ness' dissipates as it gets warmer.  How long do you run the lamp for?"

"Looks like the generic 'motion lamps' that were everywhere around the late 90's... surprised they could get away with calling it an 'astro lamp' which is surely a copyright held by Mathmos."

"What's so bad about the finish on the new Telstars?My Telstars are of circa-2000 vintage and develop a strange dark patina on the legs, which is a real pain to polish off. I remember hearing that the newer post-reintroduction models didn't…"

"New colour combinations on the Fireflow aswell - now comes in violet/orange and yellow/blue.Not entirely sure how I feel about the Fireflow - nice idea, but the vase doesn't look tall enough for a decent flow. But if it was free..."

lampfancy replied to Ian's discussion Double Play lamp
"Interesting concept, but surely this would work better with a tubular shaped lamp (Think something along the lines of a Mathmos Jet) with a more substantial 'lava core', the skinny little tube in the lamp shown looks almost lost amongst…"

"Got a new Astro recently, while the metalwork seems well finished, the  plastic forming the underside of the base looks pretty shoddy, with rough edges - much worse than my older Astro, from around 2000, and to think they now cost nearly double…"

Mathmos Astro Blue/Purple

"Yeah, would quite like this colourway or the violet/ pink on an Astro - suppose you could swap the fluids between two bottles but I'm not much of a 'tinkerer' myself :-| Clear/ white looks great when new, trouble is the wax…"

Nee replied to lampfancy's discussion Mathmos price hike
"Yeah prices hiked up yesterday. The astro from 68 to 75. The heritage and copper 74 to 80. The Neo 68 to 70. And the metallic 78 to 85. So not just a little hike but a biggy. Astro bottles are also now £30 each.  They really need to up…"

"Not long now... Wonder if it applies to the Heritage Astro - kind of want one, but not in any of the current colourways"

Mathmos Astro Blue/Purple

"Very nice, take it this is a 'custom' job? Wish Mathmos would introduce the new colourways for the Neo onto the rest of their range."

Mathmos price hike

Just a bit of a warning to Mathmos collectors - noticed on the facebook page they have announced that the prices of several lamps (Astro, Astrobaby and Neo) are to increase in the UK as of next week...Pretty disappointing that Mathmos lamps are becoming increasingly un-affordable, they were always fairly expensive, but now it just seems to be getting ridiculous, and now they only sell directly there's not even a chance of even being able to get one on sale at John Lewis or the like.Bleh.

lampfancy replied to perishingtardis's discussion Mathmos bulbs
"Just recently bought a new Astro, which came with a 35w screw-in halogen. Really don't like the way the lamp behaves with this bulb, seems to run the lamp far too hot, and makes the lamp far too bright, like to the point looking directly at it…"

Astro Baby - Nordic

"What colourway is the Astrobaby?"
Feb 13
Nee replied to lampfancy's discussion Branding on new Mathmos lamps
"The Neo and Telstar lamps have embossed branding on the lower metalwork. The astro and baby astro no longer have any branding on the metalwork. All of the newer bottles now have the branding on them in a silvery metallic type paint. "
